Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forrest Church (1948-2009) served almost three decades as senior minister and was Minister of Public Theology of All Souls, a Unitarian Universalist congregation in New York City. He was educated at Stanford University, Harvard Divinity School, and Harvard University, where he received his Ph.D. in early church history. He wrote or edited twenty-five books, including Life Lines, Lifecraft, The American Creed, Freedom from Fear, So Help Me God, Love & Death,  and The Cathedral of the World.

Synopsis:

On February 4, 2008, Forrest Church sent a letter to the members of his congregation, informing them that he had terminal cancer but promising to sum up his thoughts on the topics that had been so pervasive in hiswork-love and death. The goal of life, Church tells us, is to live in such a way that our lives will prove worth dying for. This moving book is imbued with ideas and exemplars for achieving that goal.
